Sparking Wellness and Creativity Through Art

A Program for Individuals with Memory Impairments

Lenox Hill Neighborhood House is excited to announce a new Art Therapy program for individuals with mild to moderate stage dementia. This five-session course will explore the use of art to spark creativity, expressive outlets and cognitive stimulation. The person-centered process will focus on each individual’s strengths and the development of their own creative style. No previous art experience required!

CARE Program

CARE is the Neighborhood House’s award-winning arts-based day program for older adults suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.

Drawing on a person-centered approach, the CARE program offers high quality care and socialization services to individuals living with late-stage dementia and provides respite services to their caregivers and families. 

CARE is open Monday-Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and works to increase client orientation and interaction through participatory programs such as the CAREfree Operetta Company, pet assisted therapy, music and art therapy and a nostalgia film series. CARE also has a storytelling project, a weekly poetry day and ongoing group discussions to increase participant self-understanding and acceptance and to facilitate reminiscence and memory. We provide a range of additional activities to stimulate clients’ cognitive and physical abilities. A light breakfast and a nutritious lunch are served each day.

To enroll, clients must be 60 years of age or older, unable to function independently because of mental impairment and in need of support throughout the day. A diagnosis of dementia is required for participation in the program.
